Why? Art Fur Animals Giveaway!

On Saturday, May 18, the final Art Fur Animals event to benefit the Friends of the Cleveland Kennel will take place at The Madison.


The event benefits the mission of the Friends of the Cleveland Kennel to provide necessary medical, enrichment, and comfort care to animals at Cleveland Animal Care and Control and offer resources to the Cleveland community in order to reduce shelter intake and improve the well being of animals.

As the dog mom of two rescue dogs, this mission is near and dear to my heart. Plus, with it being the final year of the event, you know they’ll make it one heck of a great party!


Included at this year’s event are mini fiberglass dogs customized by local artists in the silent auction; a live art auction; appetizers and desserts from Bonefish Grille,
Rudy’s Strudel, Saucisson, and Cleveland Cupcake Co.;
wine and local craft beer from Tremont Taphouse and Great Lakes Brewing Company, served by celebrity bartenders; music from DJ Funk-Shway; a photo booth; and lots more fun at one of the hottest new event venues.


Tickets are currently on sale for $50 for general admission and $125 for VIP admission (which includes early access to the event, complimentary beer/wine all evening, an event t-shirt, special VIP menu & lounge area, and limited reserved seating during the live auction). Volunteers are also needed for the event. Email the event team at artfuranimals@gmail.com if you are interested.

    We are the proud owners of two dwarf hamsters-Squeakers and Cocoa – who run on their exercise wheel more than I on my elliptical 😁 I get the biggest kick out of them in the morning when they run up to the cage when I pass. I like to think they love me, but they probably are looking for treats 😄

    I used to have 2 beautiful black kitties, Inkus and Annie. We lost Inkus in 2014 at the age of 14. I loved him so much. Annie crossed the rainbow bridge right after Thanksgiving last year at 17 years old from cancer. Our house was without four babies for the first time in 17 years. Still getting used to the quiet and no litter box.

    I’ve had my current foster, Joy, since noember 28, 2018. To say shes been a medical mystery is an understatement. She has/had demodex, bacterial infections, compmete hair loss from her back down, and signs of multiple litters leaving her with horribly hanging, overly large “female parts”.
    Its April and were still dealing with her skin condition. After multiple vet visits, tests, skin biopsies and 7 antibiotics and numerous other medications, her skin is a little clearer but shes still naked and we’re still not sure what’s going on. If it wasn’t for FOCK paying for her medical care at TAC and the wonderful vet at the Cleveland kennel seeing us with every flare up, I doubt Joy would still be here. She definitely would have died on the streets. No one at CACC has given up on her. She is an amazing, loving, beautiful girl who is going to make someone out there the best forever pet. As her name implies, Joy is definitely a joy to be around. Thank you FOCK and CACC for all you have done, and do every day for the dogs at the Cleveland kennel!
